For those of you who wanted to see more detail in the foreground of this shot from the original set I posted - have upped the exposure in the lower half in LR3

A matter of personal preference I suppose - I was happy with the original but now can not make my mind up which I prefer.

Opiniions? - here is the original and exposure enhanced version

Original




Foreground adjusted


No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

#2. Doesn't lose the main feel of the image whilst giving better emphasis to the textures on the water

Thanks for all of your comments - 100% in favour of V2 - so I think I had better re-visit several other shots that are similar

I have to side with v2 as well

I have to admit to some jealousy - an early trip to a harbour for me is June - one day I will move near to the coast (hopefully)
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Stuey - I know exactly how you feel. I live 66 miles from the east coast and 64 miles from the west coast - couldnt live further from my favourite subject in the UK if I tried.

That said - I make sure I get to the coast at least once a month

Although in a minority I think I prefer the first image which seems to capture the mystery of darkness giving way to light.

In their different ways both are beautiful photos.

Both great shots, but No1 just has the edge for me. You can still see detail in the foreground boat.
